Automatic savingΒΆ

Enable automatic saving for auto-save mode and skip the interaction with the PDFCreator. Therefore you have to predefine the file format and a filename (see Document) you would like to use. The target folder must be set here. If the folder does not exist it will be created.

Since there is no interaction, auto-save profiles must store all required passwords.

If you configured an auto-save profile, you have to link it to a printer in the application settings. Using this printer your file will be automatically created according to your settings. If you want to change this settings, you have to start PDFCreator from the Windows Explorer.

Ensure unique filenames: With this option existing files won’t be overwritten. Therefore existing filenames will get a numbered appendix. For example if “Testfile.pdf” already exists, it will be renamed to “Testfile_2.pdf”. This will ensure that automatic saving does not (accidentally) delete files.
